Chocolate Mounds Pie

My hubby & I both LOVE Mounds candy. This has all the same ingredients, but isn't made with Mounds. It IS delicious! And for all you out there with Gluten allergies, it's gluten free. Yeahhhhhh!

Chocolate Mounds Pie

Ingredients for the crust:

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

4 cups sweetened shredded coconut

¼ cup Coconut flour

¼ cup Almonds (raw & unsalted)

Ingredients for the filling:

2 cups heavy cream

16 ounces bittersweet chocolate (preferably 61 percent cacao), finely chopped

1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a food processor, process butter, almonds, & coconut flour untill it forms a crust-like mixture. Place into a large mixing bowl, & add in coconut. Mix until a crust forms. In a glass pie pan, use 2/3 of the mixture to press into the bottom and sides of pan as a crust. Sprinkle remaining coconut mixture around the edges forming a high crust edge. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove & cool.

Bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan; pour over chocolate in a medium heat proof  bowl. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes, & then stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is combined. Add vanilla. Pour into coconut crust. Refrigerate until filling is set, (about 3 hours).


  1. Oh my, this sounds like complete pie heaven! I'm a Mounds fan too, and I would love a slice of this!

  2. This is the best thing I've seen all day! I could eat this whole thing!

  3. Oh my goodness this sounds like a slice of heaven. Almond Joys are my favorite candy bar...pretty much the only one I will eat. This pie is right up my alley.

  4. Bring it on! Wow, I am drooling right now because this looks so dang amazing. And it looks fairly simple too! Hooray! Great photos too.

  5. I love mounds bars too! The boyfriend always makes fun of me for it, saying that the mounds bar is the least popular of all candy bars. Guess that means that I can make this pie and he won't want any! It sounds delish.

  6. OMG I am in love with this pie! Looks totally decadent and delicious!

  7. I would totally be in heaven with a slice of this pie! It sounds amazing =)
